Import CFD data for visualizing in paraview
Hi guys,

I am new to CFD and I have some CFD data that I want to visualize in ParaView.

File 1: grid points (coordinates of N points)
x1 y1 z1
x2 y2 z2
xN yN zN

For each of the grid point i (1 <= i <= N), there is a file that gives the variable values of the point at different time steps, for example for point 1, we have a file in the following format:
time rho u v w pressure
0 1.3639 20.11 0.14 1.45 87030
100 1.3740 25.62 -0.1 3.5 89460

I would like to visualize individual variable (e.g., velocity, pressure) of the data at different time steps and possibly could show the variable evolution across the time.

I managed to import the grid data into ParaView by reading the grid file in csv format. However, I got lost in linking the variable values with each individual point. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks a lot!
